JRFC October Newsletter01/10/2011
The first month of the season has seen rugby at all levels resume across the Island after the summer break. Jersey's 1st XV were first out of the blocks, before August had even finished, and have made an encouraging start to life in SSE National League One. Ben Harvey's men have won three out of five games so far, including narrow away wins against two of London's establishment clubs, Blackheath and Rosslyn Park. Both losses have come against last year's National Two champions, Fylde and Ealing, who are currently blazing a trail at the top of the table.
Now the 2nd XV, Colts and Academy have all begun their season, while the Wanderers will kick off in earnest when the annual Super 10s Vets' tournament takes place this weekend. It's a busy time at JRFC, with some of the key events covered in this month's newsletter.
